31st March 1889 – Eiffel Tower officially inaugurated

One of the world’s most recognized structures and icon for the city of Paris was inaugurated on 31st March 1889. It was opened on the 6th May 1889. I was there last Tuesday with my two daughters and took this photograph.

Eiffel Tower

We waited about 45 minutes to buy our tickets. We intended to see Paris from the top floor. Just before we got to the ticket booth they decided there were too many people queuing for the lift from the second floor to the top floor so they closed the top floor. We could wait a hour, we were told, if we really wanted to buy tickets to the top floor. We decide not to wait since it was quite cold. When we arrived on the second floor it was snowing so we did not feel quite so disappointed after that.
